Ahhh, 1976 . . . the U.S. is 200 years old, gasoline is up to 59 cents a gallon, the first Concorde airplane took off, the CN tower in Toronto is completed, and NASA shows off the very first Space Shuttle, Enterprise. For movie lovers, this is the year that Matsushita introduces the VHS home video cassette recorder to compete with Sony's Beta max system. Now we can watch movies anytime at home! The music you listened to was made by Barry Manilow, Diana Ross, The Four Seasons, Paul Simon and Paul McCartney and Wings. Future movie star Reese Witherspoon was born, and Chinese leader Mao Tse-tung died. I was still working at the steel mill in McDonald, Ohio, and life was pretty awesome. White kernel popcorn almost every evening as my young wife and I watched the boob tube until bed time. The big horror flick that year was The Omen, but there were many more, including this motion picture about a Moon Beast that kills when the moon is full. There is the now obligatory blonde Farrah Fawcett look-alike and the guys under 30 had long hair and side burns, but the old timers still had shiny slicked back hair compliments of Vitalis or other hair grease. For me this horror thriller was more of a blast-from-the-past than a goose-bump scare, but totally entertaining. If you were there, you'll enjoy the trip to your past, and if you were not there, you can enjoy watching what your dad and mom were like back in the day!
Alan Swain, as the Moon Beast is about to tear him apart.
